By owning a dog grooming table you are instantly providing a safe and comfortable place for your dog to rest whilst they are groomed to perfection. Although, these tables are not necessary, they definitely help you and your dog relax. However, if you do decide to groom other dogs then I would highly recommend owning the best dog grooming table for peace of mind should the dog not react to kindly / become agitated.
What Type of Dog Grooming Tables are Available?
Any of the Best Dog Grooming Tables, whether it be Electric or Portable, should allow you to work on dogs of all shapes, sizes and breeds. You should also be able to groom these dogs at your most comfortable position by easily adjusting the height of the table. Your own health is just as important as your dogs so ensure your posture and back is in the right position.
If you are planning on starting your own dog grooming business from home then it is highly recommended going for a more expensive model as described below. If you are looking at just grooming your own dog from time to time then aim for the cheaper more conventional models
Electric Dog Grooming Tables are the most expensive and can cost well in the thousands. At the press of a button you can quickly and easily adjust the height of the table. Also known as Lift Tables, you can adjust the height from anywhere around 50cm high to 130cm high making the grooming session much more comfortable.
Hydraulic Dog Grooming Tables are a more economic version of the electric dog grooming tables. Using the hydraulic foot pump, you can easily adjust the tables height. If you only have a couple of dogs that are the same height and rarely feel the need to change height, then a hydraulic table is for you. Hydraulic Dog Grooming Tables are lesser priced than that Electric Dog Grooming Tables but still more expensive the the portable dog grooming tables.
Portable, Foldable and adjustable tables work out to be far cheaper than any of the above tables. Although a great advantage of these tables is that they fold down and can be easily stored away, they are only really suited for occasional use as they lack stability. These are very well priced and provide enough space and coverage for a quick groom before folding away. Portable Dog Grooming Tables are popular with Mobile Dog Groomers.
What Qualities Make the Best Dog Grooming Table?
There are so many different types of grooming table it would be difficult to review them all. Furthermore, dog grooming tables can come with many different features and accessories. I will start by helping you understand what you need to look out for when choosing the best grooming table, whether it be a portable dog grooming table or a static grooming table.
The most important attributes of the best dog grooming tables are;
- Adjustable Height – Height adjustment is, in our opinion, the most important quality of any of the best dog grooming tables. By simply adjusting the height you can make the grooming session a lot more comfortable for both you and your dog. This will also protect your back and posture.
- Cleanliness – The easiest dog grooming tables to clean are the smooth surfaced stainless steel tables. Other tables have crevices that collect hair and over time will start to look untidy. If your grooming table has a mat, this mat should be safe and easy to be removed so that it can be washed between use.
- Safety – Ensure that the dog grooming table has a non slip rubber mat. This will prevent the dog from injury when wet.
- Loops and Arms – Keeping our dog in the same position can require a great deal of encouragement, even for well trained dogs. Using adjustable arms and grooming loops you can easily keep the dog in the same comfortable position whilst grooming.
- Storage – Easy storage space under the table is a great way to have easy access to the tools and equipment you need when grooming a dog. This prevents having to leave the table and can ensure you are fully prepared for each grooming session
- Size – This all depends on what you need the dog grooming table for. If your using for your self and you have a small dog, then a single, small, grooming table will be sufficient. If you have a dog grooming business and the dogs that visit are all larger dogs then a larger table is required. The size of the table will also help you with preventing lower back aches and a lifetime of back problems.
Are All The Above Necessary When Buying a Dog Grooming Table?
Honestly? There isn’t a full answer I can give to this question. The best advice I can give here is that you should make sure you choose wisely and make sure you have made the right decision as to what the dog grooming table is going to be used for. The more you pay for your grooming table, the better quality of product you get. The cheaper, portable dog grooming tables can be flimsy and have a short life span, where as the much more expensive electric dog grooming tables are made to last and will save £££’s in the long term.
